Where we grow hockey players

This is how we get so many Canadian hockey players in the NHL. We start them young. These are the mighty Mites Jamboree in our little town of Vermilion Bay. The kids are in the 4-6 year old range. Gavan our son is now in his 3rd year of hockey at age 6 and loves it. Him managed to negotiate $5 per each goal he scored in the tournament. He ended up with two goals. The kids are so fun to watch at this age. They fall over like bowling pins, but do have a lot of fun. We don't keep score, and everyone gets a medal at the end of the games.
